I use visual arts such as collages and photography combined with different aspects of typography incorporating my poetry within the piece is a component that has been working for me. My intention is to reach a variety of audiences to touch on different subjects and passions that reach and capture their attention.
My name is Yenia Jimenez. I am an indigenous artist from San Francisco, California. I started collage art and poetry as a youth and have turned my passion for this expression into a career. My art highlights the complexities of growing up in the projects and highlighting different issues such as identity, generational trauma, feminism, and gentrification. I published my first book in 2020 during the pandemic: Visualize What You Read. I have been performing and holding book readings, and workshops throughout San Francisco prior to and after its release. I am currently a student at CCSF and have enrolled in The Poetry For The People program. I am also studying typography and visual arts. My first digital art collage poetry book is set to release in the middle of August 2022. My Spanish translation of Visualize What You Read is set to release in late October of 2022. I have sold over 500 copies nationwide.
